Dino Safari: A Prehistoric Adventure
Attention, budding paleontologists and dinosaur lovers: Dino Safari is for you! Located at North Point Mall, the walk-through adventure is both educational and fun. You’ll visit the various areas of Pangea to see about 30 dinosaurs. My 8-year-old loved reading the signs and learning about the various species, locations, and time periods of the “Age of the Dinosaurs.” The signs hold a lot of information but are presented and written in a kid-friendly way.
The lighting of the exhibit, as well as the sounds and movement of the dinosaurs, give the experience a realistic feel, especially for preschool-aged children. We saw younger kids having fun as they explored the hands-on experiences like digging for fossils, sliding down a dino tail, and playing games in the “fun zone” at the end of the exhibit.
Know Before You Go:
Once inside the exhibit, guests can stay as long as they like, but plan on spending about an hour at Dino Safari. The exhibit is on the upper level of North Point Mall. A timed ticketing system keeps each area from becoming too crowded, so families can get up close and personal with their favorite dinosaurs.
